Most shirt jackets are made from rugged cotton/polyester blends and flannel (flannel linings are especially common, because they’re so soft and warm). But higher-end jackets may be crafted from wool—the warmest and most durable fabric for a jacket this style. A wool piece won’t just look sharp, it’ll last forever with proper care.
